J.W., we only knew him as J. W. although he was known as "Jay" after he grew up, was one of our gentle giants; a tall, powerful kid, standing about 6’4” he was larger than Bobby Keener and Steve Means, two of our best athletes. Although we played on several of the same teams, for some reason J. W. was one of those kids who never quite played up to his athletic potential. He was one of the more promising football prospects early-on, but after playing on McBee’s Rinky Dinks JV team as a Sophomore, didn’t play football beyond that. He may have been injured, I don’t know.
God bless you my friend
